‘The latest Mag is the best you've ever produced, and that's saying something, as they are always excellent.’ – a reader from Surrey

Words for Life is the Wycliffe magazine and prayer diary, which contains the latest stories and prayer requests from around the world.

In it you can read about how God changes people’s lives as Scripture becomes available in their own languages, explore all the places and cultures where Wycliffe works, and discover more about all the different aspects of the work of Bible translation – and the impact that work has in peoples’ lives.

‘May I say how much I appreciate receiving Words for Life with all its information and prayer diary which I use daily.’ – a reader from Essex

There is a community of people in the UK and Ireland who pray regularly for the work of Bible translation. Many of them use the daily prayer diary in Words for Life to guide their prayers, and we love to add our voices to theirs as we pray together in the various Wycliffe offices.

We are so encouraged to hear how God answers prayers from previous editions and we love to praise him as we see different translation projects progressing and people growing in faith, beginning to follow Jesus and sharing the good news with those around them.

The latest edition

This summer we hear the remarkable story of the recently completed Lenthomi* Bible and about Pastor Odah in Togo, who is waiting eagerly for the ongoing Ifè Old Testament translation work to be completed. We will join together in prayer with people in Papua New Guinea, Kenya, and around the world, praise God for how he answered our prayers for the Lenthomi people in 2016 and 2017, and look forward to the launch of the new School of Language and Scripture, Wycliffe’s training partnership with Moorlands College.

We hope you are inspired to read about some of the many, many ways God is at work through Bible translation.
